      Yes we do... in order to continue with the academy you need to be able to pass a firearms training in order to graduate the academy.

  • Just got my certification email, to me I think the process is moving fast now , then in previous years. I took the test in December of 2020, and now I wait to here from Hr .my question is how long is the academy, and how many classes are they running at one time.

      Academy is 4 months long, not sure where they are holding it now used to be at Moraine College. I think they run 3-4 at time now. They are def trying to pump them out. Mega short, ot everyday or mandation.

      How long would it take for them to send me the certification email?

      Well if you mean the background packet, you would need to do your interview with the detective and then you get your cert email. From what I've been reading its going way faster then when I did it. It took me 1 year but i hear only few weeks/months now.

  • From what I’ve heard they are pushing classes through like crazy. Paying us a lot of OT, so they wanna cut back on that. Expect to move very quickly. Any questions DM me.

          Did you take the physical fitness test shortly after the written? Also, how difficult is the written exam

          Didn't have to take the physical fitness test, because i have my power card that i got back in sept. I just had to turn it in with my background packet. The written was not difficult. It is mostly comprised of reading comprehension questions.

      • Did my poly today, I say it went well fingers crossed

              Got the call just now to come in and do the drug test ! What is the next step after that?

          • Brown2525 That’s good news that means you’re only waiting for orientation. I know that job offer letters need to come out today or Monday. To give people at least two weeks notice.
